Using best practices from the Boston SIB Committee, Western Massachusetts hosted their first Girls in Trades Conference & Career Fair at Dean Tech. Held on April 14, 2017, attendees included 230 girls from 11 schools.
Also in attendance were several tradeswomen; they delivered presentations and promoted their specific trades. Rounding out the attendees were seven contractors and four end-users who showcased jobs and promoted work opportunities.
As the photos show, the event sparked a lot of interest – even getting airtime on Channel 22 TV.
